Not bad, but nothing amazing.

We earned a Buy One Get One Buffet comp through playing MyVegas so decided to eat here. We stayed at Luxor so the walk over to Mandalay was nice through the walkway. The buffet had no line when we went right around the start of lunchtime. The decor looked kind of Asian/Polynesian inspired and we... read more

The buffet has really gone down hill. I stay at this property several times a year and have enjoyed this buffet once in awhile. The prime rib was dried out. The layout of the buffet made no sense. They had sliced lemons by the salad buffet and nothing by the cold shrimp. I would not recommend this buffet to anyone... More

Buffet was okay. Lots of food options but food quality was average and buffet was expensive. Use M Life Card if you have one to get a discount on adult meal price. Conveniently located if you are staying at Mandalay and you will definitely be full at end of meal.

Great buffet for everyone. Grand assortment of fine foods from around the world and reasonably priced for as much as you can eat. Some lovely desserts too and massive ice creams too

We got the buffet deal as part of our room price.We had been to one at the MGM Grand a few years ago but we both thought the food and presentation at the Mandalay Bay was far superior.I disagree with other comments as I thought the choice and quality was excellent. My problem with buffets at Vegas is the greed... More

First, to enter the buffet takes 30 minutes even when there are very few people waiting. Next, the food is tasteless and there are very few choices. The roast beef looked liked it had been aged for years under a heat lamp and the sushi appeared to also contain aged rice. The only eatable items I found were salad and... More

Have been to the Bayside buffet a couple of times for breakfast and enjoyed it. Had a MyVegas two for one dinner and thought we would try an evening trip. Everything was well presented and fresh. Drinks are actually served by a host rather than self - serve like some other MGM buffets. Prefer it this way as you get... More

My wife and I were not overly impressed with this buffet. We have been to a few buffets in Vegas (Cosmo, Bellagio, etc.) and this one was below average. The service wasn't the greatest, the food was average and the options were okay. I wouldn't go back.

We had booked the Michael Jackson show and they had the Buffett on offer when you booked them together, this was our first experience of a Buffett in Vegas OMG it would be easier to list the things that they didn't have available, I don't think we even got round half of it and were so full. The atmosphere in... More
